The collective behavior of many quantum particles often bears no resemblance to their individual characters, and demands fundamentally new paradigms for their description. We are a Condensed Matter Theory group with diverse interests in the physics of Quantum Many-Body systems. We are most active in the fields of Weyl Semimetals, Chaos and Thermalization, Quasi-1D phenomena and Topological Superconductivity.
(Jun 2023) Our work on the vortex spectrum of superconducting Weyl semimetals featured in the Department and the College news. Watch a recent talk.
